      The revolution I am talking about is the same as Bacon advocated - then it was: ..true scientists. In no science, do you have specialist critics or readers….. The equivalent now is get rid of arts critics and only have artists and focus on the various parts of the world they study not the work.

      This is nonsense. The problem is that you don't have a clue about how to study the work.

      But science courses, treat the arts totally oppositely - as scientifically useful knowledge of the world. Thus courses in say Psychology, Psychiatry, Law, Sociology, Medicine increasingly use works of art, esp, movies to study their subjects.

      Increasingly, but still not very much.
